LinkedIn Spam - You have unread messages from dorothy
No Capital 'D' on Dorothy, but apart from that there is not much to give this one away - it is just a way of advertising a site - but this email is surprisingly effective, we're just not sure how it passed SPF and got in!

Opportunity is always within reach. Get the LinkedIn app.

The target site of most of the links is actually: http://linkdne.ihostfull.com/ which Chrome literally marked as deceptive whilst we were examining it. In truth it is just a bounce for various adverts, probably forwarded on by a phony marketing company looking to get hits for unsuspecting customers.
Not a bad effort all-round and a great way of getting hits.
No real danger.
Mark as spam and report the sites.
